My name is Nazario Graziano, i’m an italian freelance illustrator, art-director, graphic-designer.
My world is romantic, ironic, no-conformist.“A dive in the past with Gore-Tex lifesaver”.
I take my inspiration from old books, illustrations for kids, sky, snow, rain and rainbows, my wife, my cats, music, old scholl skateboards, 80?s memories, 50?s sci-fi movies, old school tattoos, typography and so much more that happens day by day ...
